"Warriors of the imagination" are what Jim Jarmusch called them. Since the Wu-Tang Clan was founded in 1991, this rap collective has proved time and again that no one can measure up to them when it comes to turning words into razor-sharp Shaolin swords. Director Sacha Jenkins, a chronicler of hip-hop from day one, brings together the eight monks of rap for an entertaining and informative look at the group's origins and history in this documentary series. In cooperation with Seriencamp München.
